I met some lovely people (strangers) and ended up in a karaoke bar, singing, laughing, and having a great time.
.. the next day, strolled around town and found the people very friendly and hospitable
Tagum was a city I had to go to. It is close to where my wife is from. There is nothing really nice about this city.
it is old and the smell from dirty trucks and cars.
A city that shows excellent urban planning. Wide expansive streets lined with palm trees welcome you to the city.
Safe to travel around. At night, the street near the town square turns into a food market with outdoor barbecues!
